Baku. 12 December. REPORT.AZ/ The German Christian Democratic Union (CDU) is exploring the possibility that Angela Merkel will transfer the powers of the Chancellor to the new leader of the Conservatives Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer until 2021, Report informs citing German newspaper Bild.
The publication notes that next year the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) may take the fourth place after the CDU, the Greens and the Alternatives for Germany in the elections to the European Parliament and in three East German lands (Brandenburg, Saxony, Thuringia).
